GlobalHAB Webinar Series: Modelling and Prediction of Harmful Algal Blooms

GlobalHAB have announced an online series of open seminars and discussions starting in June 2021 to address the grand challenge of predicting harmful algal blooms.

This monthly series will be delivered by six experts and the topics will cover size-based models, acclimation models, model validation,  machine learning and more. The participants will have the opportunity to share their local issues with the community, to interact with leading scientists in the field, and to learn state-of-art modelling techniques.

SOLAS Summer Schools 2022 & 2023

Due to worldwide travel restrictions, the in-person SOLAS Summer School on Cape Verde has been postponed to summer 2023. Applications for this School will be reopened in summer/fall 2022.

A virtual version of the School  will take place in summer 2022.

Please Note: Your participation in the virtual School does not discount the possibility for you to attend the in-person School in 2023.

The virtual and in-person SOLAS Summer School will make significant efforts to promote sustainability and diversity in science.

Training courses in data analytics and management for the maritime sector

ED2MIT is a series of training courses for topics related to data literacy, data management and modern platforms for digitalisation in the maritime industry to facilitate its readiness to Industry 4.0. 

Three courses are planned between January and March 2021:


Introduction to Big Data Analytics for the Maritime Sector

Industrial Data Spaces, Organisational Data Management & Governance for the Maritime Sector

8th International SOLAS Summer School

The 8th SOLAS Summer School will be held from 7-18 June 2021 at the Ocean Science Centre Mindelo, Cape Verde.

It will bring together over 70 students and 20 world-leading international scientists, in a variety of fields, for a combination of lectures and practical workshops. 

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, a contingency plan for the school has been developed. The school will be postponed if the situation worsens and travel is no longer possible.


The deadline for applications to this course has been extended to March 31st, 2020.

The 2020 Advanced school on Multispecies modelling Approaches for ecosystem based marine REsource management in the MEDiterranean Sea, AMARE-MED 2020 will be held at the University of Split (Croatia) from 20 to 25 July 2020.

Knowledge Exchange and Training Course on Metabarcoding and Metagenomic Data Processing and Analyses

EuroMarine Member Organisation SZN Anton Dohrn has announced registrations are open for a Knowledge Exchange and Training course on Metabarcoding and Metagenomic Data Processing and Analyses. This course, which is sponsored by the Assemble+ project and the European Commission, will be hosted by SZN in Naples, Italy from February 3rd to 7th, 2020.

Training Course: Qualitative Mathematical Modelling for Socio-Ecological Systems

As part of the MarCons COST action, the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC) has organised a course aimed at introducing qualitative mathematical modelling as a means to understand and predict the dynamics of complex biological and socio-economic systems. The course is free of charge, and a limited number of trainees may apply for financial support to attend.
